The Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe and Cabriolet were recently introduced and both models are now available for order. The German luxury carmaker has expanded its eighth-generation range with the addition of this 911 Carrera model. What all is special about this sports car? Let's delve into the details through this picture gallery.
We will come to the Coupe's appearance in a bit. First let’s talk about the 3.0-litre, six-cylinder boxer engine with bi-turbo charging that produces 385bhp of power.
This rated power output is 15bhp more than its predecessor. As a result the 911 Carrera Coupe achieves the 0-100kmph sprint in a claimed time of just 4.2 seconds.
Also, there's an optional Sport Chrono Package which shaves a further 0.2 seconds off the sprint time. Top speed is rated at 293kmph.
It gets a boost in performance largely through the smaller wheel diameters of the turbines and compressors that feature in the new turbochargers.
Power transmission is handled by the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK). The coupe shares a similar range of standard features compared to the 911 Carrera S.
Porsche says, as with the Carrera S model, the engine, chassis and brakes in the new Carrera are designed for exclusive sportiness.
As for the outer appearance, the 911 Carrera Coupe like the Cabriolet distinguishes itself thanks to the smaller-sized wheels, brakes and tailpipe covers on the exhaust system.
Some highlights include a 10.9-inch touchscreen display and an innovative assistance system named Porsche Wet Mode, which ensures even safer handling than before.
The driving dynamics set-up includes a mixed tyre configuration featuring 235/40 ZR tyres on 19-inch alloy wheels on the front axle and 295/35 ZR tyres at the rear on 20-inch wheels.
Meanwhile, stopping power comes from 330-millimetre brake discs with black, four-piston monobloc fixed callipers.
